Sophie and Gary were married at St Mary’s Church, Ware, on the 17th April 2009. Their reception was at Fanham’s Hall Hotel.

The ceremony was conducted by Paul, a family friend. He was great fun with a warm and relaxed approach. In fact, the way he conducted the ceremony reminded me of the way my Dad worked – he was a Church of England minister for over 35 years.

Fanhams Hall is a beautiful venue. The gardens are immaculately cared for, and the staff took superb care of Sophie, Gary and their guests.

A big thank-you to Jennifer, Sophie’s sister. She works at another, well known Hertfordshire Wedding venue, and recommened me to Sophie and Gary.

A thank-you from Sophie and Gary:

“We have just seen the photos on your website and just wanted to say thank you for taking such amazing photos and really capturing the whole day so well. I love all the photos you have taken of people relaxed and enjoying themselves, the photo of the best men practicing their speech really made us laugh. Thank you also for making the taking of the formal photos so quick and organised, a lot of guests commented that they really liked not having to wait around for all the photos to be taken.”
